You will need to create a registry key and push it out with group policy

HKU or HKCU \Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\1-4\Flags

with REG_DWORD 67

REG_DWORD 71 - is to select the tick box
Zones are 1-4 choose which one and replace text in bold above

is there anyway to do it through the gui?

what is the proper way to push out the registry key?

is the registry key the same for windows 7 and 8? 32 bit and 64 bit?

with the removal of Internet Explorer Maintenance, there is no option,

It should be the same for Window 7/8 and Server 2008/2012 32 and 64 bit

Here is an article with some screenshots of how to create the registry key in the group policy, its at the bottom of the article.

Just a heads up, if you set trusted sites with site to zone assignment, the users lose the ability to add sites themselves.
